There will be a variety of entertainment staged throughout the downtown area Saturday. The Nomads will take the stage 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Central Avenue.
The popular gigantic sand pile sponsored by Los Alamos National Bank and Los Alamos County will form a mini-mountain on Central Avenue in front of CB FOX Department Store.
